For 1991 geo metro 1.0 liter 3 cyl engine the timing is 6 degrees before top dead center. you will need a tachometer because the rpm must be 800 when you set the timing. also you will need to disconnect the vacuum advance to the distributor, and plug the hose to avoid a vacuum leak. (alternate method is to pinch the vacuum advance hose going to the distributor while you are setting the timing) Good Luck!

I need to know where to put the transmission oil in a 1991 Geo Metro 3 cylinder


For $20 you can get a workshop manual. This vehicle comes in a manual gearbox or an automatic gearbox. We are not able to help you until we know which?

1988 geo metro, started making loud grinding noises and wont let me downshift until complete stopped. Sometimes I can downshift to 4th and thats it.


Sounds like a clutch going out. By the way, are you sure it was a 1988? Geos were only made from 1989 to 1997, then became Chevys.

No spark on coil


it's a 96, in usa, (are you) id bet not.
Getting ECU scan data called DTCs ,etc."trouble codes"
USA we scan it. and get the DTC errors. (OBD2)
not USA, it's the lamp blink marakley way (OBD1)

both ECUs willshow you DTCs. (no spark) and maybe WHY
if the CMP sensors and some engines, CKP/CMP are bad
you will get codes, 41,42, or P0340/355 (USA)

which engine,? they have 2 . always post engine
1.3 L M13A I4 (petrol)
1.5 L M15A I4 (petrol)
1.3 L I4 (diesel) (nah ? no, spark here)

ENGINE:
if not sure, open hood (all comment for me are USA) and look up
under hood and see EPA, smog /vacuum map sticker ,see that.
see that statement of what engine this is? bingo.
if not on other countries, the fire wall tag , near battery shows same.

if car is 96 use any scan tool made.
if car is not OBD2 then place the diagnostic jumper and count flashes
tell more get more.... have full specs on car.

the car with too many names, see the list (helps find more facts , knowing this fact)
The Swift was marketed in the Japanese domestic market (JDM) as the Cultus and elsewhere as the Suzuki Forsa, Suzuki Jazz, Chevrolet Swift, Chevrolet Sprint and Sprint Metro, Geo and Chevrolet Metro, Pontiac Firefly, Maruti 1000, Holden Barina and Subaru Justy. Versions of the second generation Cultus were also produced until 2007 in India and the car remains in production today in Pakistan.

i have only 2 questions,
what country.
what engine options.

Despite public perceptions, (wrong) all cars are not all the same world wide. not by a long shot. (end rant)

try here, see the same warnings at the top.
now the best. (read here)

I took motor/tranny out of well maintained/well running 1994 Geo metro xf and installed them in a 1995 geo metro LSI. everything went well i had to use the 1995 intake and throttle body due to wiring...


Yes, because the specs are different... most manufatures change the specs on vehicles every four years, so 90-94 is most likely all the same, but then you will have 95-99 an so on an so on.. Good Luck

91 geo metro will start fine when cold but will not start when warm. Would injector cleaner put into fuel help?


Likely not. Check it for spark when its hot. It might be an ignition module or coil problem.

No fire to coil replace coal and tested ignition


Try checking the timing belt. They will cause this issue if they are even slightly streched or worn .... because theys slkip and make engine jump time. you can replace it and should solve the problem after you get it back in time.

Frame top convertible


You will need to visit an auto salvage yard.
The same top will fit from any 90-93 Geo Metro, Suzuki Swift or Pontiac Firefly.

Hey iam looking for tail lights for suzuki swift 1995 model can you help me please.


Get to know the sister cars. The Suzuki Swift is almost completely identical to the Geo Metro and the Pontiac Firefly: the only differences were that the Metro and the Firefly were available in sedan form and the Swift wasn't. Also, no changes were made to any of these cars between 1995 and 1997. If you look for parts for any of these cars they will work.

Vehicles mentioned:
1995, 1996, 1997 Suzuki Swift
1995, 1996, 1997 Geo Metro 2/3dr
1995, 1996, 1997 Pontiac Firefly 2/3dr

In addition the only things that changed after 1997 were the bumpers and front turn signals (and that the Metro became a Chevy) so taillights for later Swifts/Metros/Fireflies should work as well.
